Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - 5/5/2017



Guardians of the Galaxy was a huge hit, so it's no wonder that the galactic group of misfits will return for the second installment of the franchise. Chris Pratt will reprise his role as Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, who is now searching for his father's true identity. (Photo: Marvel)


Wonder Woman - 6/23/2017

Aquaman - 6/27/2018

These people love League of Legends way more than you

Ahri and Her Nine Tails



The Los Angeles Anime Expo, the largest anime convention in North America, recently brought together some of the best League of Legends cosplayers. Here's a classic Ahri the fox with her nine tails. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


A Gender-Bending Darius



Cosplayers don't limit themselves based on gender. Here's a cosplayer gender-bending as Darius, the battle-hardened warrior from Noxus. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Caitlyn Protects the Land



Anime Expo isn't exactly Piltover, but this Caitlyn cosplayer looks to protect the Los Angeles Convention Center from crime. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Annie Can Be a Real Sweetheart



A dedicated fan dresses up as Sweetheart Annie with her teddy bear, Tibbers, in tow. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Draven, the Glorious Executioner, Searches For a Victim



Darius' brother, Draven, dual-wields his two massive axes as he looks for his next casualty. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Katarina the Sinister Blade



Dual-wielding weapons is a common theme at the Anime Expo. Katarina, the assassin from Noxus, is looking dangerous as she poses with her two pistols. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


The Sun Beats Down on Frostfire Annie



The Southern California sun can't stop this cosplayer from dressing up as Frostfire Annie at the Anime Expo. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Graves & Azir Pose Together



Two of the more popular champions in League of Legends, Graves and Azir, pose together outside of the Anime Expo. Who would've thought an outlaw and a mage could look so happy together? (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


The Most Dedicated Nightblade Irelia



This zealous cosplayer dresses as Nightblade Irelia at the Anime Expo. You won't see many champions with this kind of dedication. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Two Jannas Are Better Than One



These Jannas look absolutely mesmerizing outside of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Masters of the element of air, either of these sorceresses could blow you away at any moment. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Syndra's Quite Powerful



This Syndra fan shows the power of her magic by levitating her Dark Sphere. Luckily for everyone in attendance, Syndra didn't unleash the devastation at her fingertips. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


The Boy That Manipulates Time



This fan does an impeccable impersonation of Ekko carrying his Zero-Drive weapon. Beware of Ekko; he'll manipulate time for his own advantage. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)


Suns Out, Sins Out



It's summer time, so this fan wanted to make sure he was comfortable yet in character for the Anime Expo as Pool Party Lee Sin. (Photo by: Gamespot staff)

16 of the dumbest Star Wars names ever

General Grievous



Even the ability to wield four lightsabers couldn't make up for the utter obviousness of this bad guy's name. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Jar Jar Binks



Ex-squeeze me, mesa thinks Jar Jar Binks is the worst name in the Star Wars universe. Or maybe our general annoyance at this character is at fault. Doesn't matter. He goes on the list. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Qui-Gon Jinn



Liam Neeson is pretty much a badass in every single movie he's in (See: Taken). Still, a Phantom Menace writer may have been Quasi-Gon on a fifth of Jinn when this name came up. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Mission Vao



Mission Vao is the generic name given to one of the party members on the search for Darth Revan in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. And it just so happens that she's on a ... hey, how did you know? (Photo: Bioware)


Sebulba



With a name like Sebulba, it's no wonder this character lost to a kid at podracing in The Phantom Menace. He's clearly meant for onion farming anyway. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Elan Sleazebaggano



Mr. Sleazebaggano had a failed attempt at selling Obi-Wan some death sticks on Coruscant. Why anyone would even entertain his sales pitch in the first place is the real mystery. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Biggs Darklighter



Biggs was a childhood friend of Luke Skywalker. He ultimately died during the Battle of Yevin in A New Hope. But with a name that implies a lights-out kind of fate, Red Three never stood a chance (Photo: LucasFilm)


Shmi Skywalker



As much fun as alliteration can be, it couldn't save Anakin Skywalker's mother Shmi from having three consecutive consonants with a vowel at the end of her name. Anakin was doomed from the get-go. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Kit Fisto



Kit Fisto was a cool Jedi master until he met his fate at the hands of Darth Sidious. Sidious, with his much better name, struck Fisto down in Revenge of the Sith. Hey, at least Fisto got to do some good work at the Battle of Mon Calamari, which sounds like an absolutely delicious fight. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Wickett W. Warrick



He might be a cute little Ewok, but that doesn't excuse Wickett W. Warrick from criticism over a name that sounds like it belongs on the calling card of a Downton Abbey character. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Supreme Leader Snoke



There's little doubt that Andy Serkis's Supreme Leader Snoke is up to something in The Force Awakens. But with a name like Snoke, how intimidating can he really be? (Photo: LucasFilm)


Plo Koon



Plo has the unfortunate distinction of having one of the worst names on the Jedi High Council. It's so bad we can't even think of a joke for this part of the caption. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Savage Opress



Darth Maul must've been the darling child if his older brother got the name Savage Opress. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Nute Gunray



The Phantom Menace's Nute Gunray is just a lazy attempt at playing off the name Newt Gingrich, the 58th Speaker of the House. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Lott Dod



This is an outrage! Lott Dod's name is another thinly veiled take on a politician's name; this time it's former U.S. Senator Trent Lott. (Photo: LucasFilm)


Watto



Apparently if you're a laughably pathetic bad guy on Tattooine, your name has to end with an "o" (Greedo, Watto). Maybe the gross slave owner/junk dealer from Tattooine just should've been named Stocko Charactero Obviouso.
